Abstract

The ways in which landscapes are represented, through maps, paintings, and photographs, influence the interpretation of a particular site. By investigating these different methods of representation, the landscape can be understood on a deeper level. Layering these various maps and images creates a variety of diagrams that can then be used to determine what are the most important qualities and how to utilize these qualities in an architectural intervention.
